So… how are things coming with your goals?
Have you achieved everything that you wanted to this year? Have you made significant progress?
If not, then perhaps it's time for a WAKE UP CALL.
The below video is a motivational video that will wake you the f#ck up. It will penetrate through the BS and stories you've been telling yourself and motivate you to take immediate action towards achieving your goals.
Watch the video below:
If you're coming up short on your goals, then it's time to re-evaluate yourself.
It's time for some tough love and to really take a look at your habits and behaviours.
Is what you're doing bringing you closer towards your goals? Are you achieving what you set out to achieve at the beginning of each year?
While I've made some incredible progress towards my goals in my Monthly Goals Reports, there's still a handful of goals that I didn't achieve for the year.
I had the intention of achieving them. I set them for that reason. However, for whatever reason I didn't.
Now I could come up with an “excuse” why I didn't achieve them…
“I didn't have the time.”
“I didn't have the resources or money to complete it.”
“I changed my mind on this goal.”
“I didn't want it bad enough.”
“XYZ happened to me.”
The excuses could go on and on…
However, these excuses are just a strategy that we come up with to avoid feeling like a failure and that we're “not enough”.
Instead, how about taking RESPONSIBILITY for the outcomes we've achieved so far?
If you've achieved the success that you wanted, then great, celebrate that.
But if you're coming up short time and time again, then be HONEST with yourself and stop pretending like it's “okay”.
LET GO of the stories and tell yourself the TRUTH.
The truth will set you free, if you let it.
Yes, the truth can be painful. It doesn't feel good to admit that you are lazy, procrastinate or are a failure.
However, that PAIN can motivate you. It can make you hit rock bottom and hit that point where you finally make a new decision.
That new decision can be, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! I WILL NO LONGER SETTLE ANYMORE!”
Pain can be your friend.
Maybe that new decision is, “I'M GOING TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES!” or “I'M GOING TO GIVE IT MY ALL!”
Moments like that can truly change your life.
In my Motivation Secret video, I shared how PAIN has been the fuel for me towards achieving many of my goals. It forced me to raise my standards and demand more from myself, which has paid off massively today.
Listen, I'm not saying to beat yourself up.
Actually wait… YES I AM.
I'm saying instead of LYING to yourself and coming up with stories why you didn't achieve things, to instead ACKNOWLEDGE that you didn't do what it takes and give yourself the pain needed to evoke change in yourself. So yes, BEAT YOURSELF UP.
You already beat yourself up, don't you? But you do a poor job of it. You give yourself pain and beat yourself up over time – only here and there.
What I'm saying to you is to GET IT OVER WITH. Beat yourself up, give yourself pain, and associate to the consequences of NOT achieving your goals. Just get it all out of your system at once, instead of doing it sporadically every day.
Like I said, the PAIN will liberate you if you convert it into fuel. Convert the pain into action. Massive action.
Your goals and dreams are still possible for you.
There's still time. You can make it happen. Don't give up.
They are waiting for you. It's not until you STEP UP and CLAIM THEM that they will be yours.
